Perhaps, as part of your urge to purge, you try to foist these rejected items on unwitting loved ones. But you know what? Your friends, relatives and neighbors do not want that little black dress you’ve owned for over a decade but have worn only twice.

“People just think a Pink Floyd album is going to be worth money someday,” but it’s not, said Zach Cohen, the owner of the Junkluggers franchise serving Brooklyn and Manhattan, which hauls about 250 truckloads of unwanted possessions every month. “Vinyl's are not worth money — no matter who it is, somebody is selling it on eBay for $2.”
